Reviews

Pianist David Phillips joined Soprano Aimee Puentes in Non temer and was the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat – his last, dating from 1791. Phillips showed himself to be a stylish Mozartean with a firm, clear touch and a lyrical sense of line. He is a poet in the purest sense of the word. His timekeeping was impeccable; a marvelous pairing with Michael Morgan's steady conducting.

Keynoter.com – Key West, Florida The second half of the performance, however, stole the show. Pianist David Phillips owned the stage and the Steinway as he revealed an intense relationship with Gershwin’s “Concerto in F.”My row E neighbor, Kirsten Koci, described it best: “He dominated the piano!”The music and the player’s persona brought back the inspirations for the classic ‘30’s cartoon- the early black and whites that might present a piano tap dancing with its pianist. You would not have been surprised last Sunday if somehow that occurred. The three movements of the composition itself are snappy, then sultry then build, becoming graceful then building to what music scholar Steven Schwartz refers to as “pyrotechnical bursts.”Gershwin Piano pieces are often very athletic; look at “Rhapsody in Blue.” Pianists end of sweating like sprinters and Phillips seemed to revel in the athleticism.

To Whom It May Concern: This message constitutes an unconditional recommendation for pianist, David Phillips of New York. I have known Mr. Phillips since his teenage years and have greatly enjoyed watching his development into the fine musician he is today. His strengths include not only formidable technique at the keyboard, but also impressive expression of the music he plays. His understanding of music theory and history is likewise quite commendable. I would expect Mr. Phillips to be successful at any music enterprise he undertakes. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

David Phllips Is a gifted pianist whom I had the pleasure of presenting in my capacity as the Director of Trinity Concerts Inc. His performance was meticulous, thoughtful, and beautiful. I will not miss an opportunity to hear him perform.
